Healthy Active Challenge
We are excited that you and possibly a couple of friends (3 people total) are willing to try to improve your health and fitness this year. This year we are using a calendar to keep us in track for the 2023 Healthy Active Challenge. Each day we will suggest that you try something new to keep yourself fit, healthy and happy. Every time you do a challenge you will earn points which can recorded on your scorecard.
At the end of each week, add up your points and report them the following Monday. A week runs Monday - Sunday. Highest scores at the end of each week, earn prizes (sent through Amazon). Also, every time your report points you earn points towards the GRAND PRIZES. These prizes are awarded at the end of the challenge.
The challenge begins Jan. 23 and ends Feb 26 at 11:59pm. Final points must be reported on Monday, Feb 27. Please report final points by 11:59pm.
When to turn in points: Report total team points every Monday that follows the end of a week. A week will run Monday-Sunday, e.g. the first week of the challenge runs Jan. 23- 29. Report points for week #1 on Monday, Jan. 30, anytime up to 11:59pm. You can do so via the Oregon Tech app or via this website. Late points will not be counted, but all activities will still earn free drawing entries.
The TEAM or INDIVIDUAL with the most points at the end of each week will be declared the weekly winner. We will have new winners each week. Points can be tracked on the Scorecard provided. You may be asked to explain your points if they are outrageously high and show your scorecard.
Every time you participate in a Bonus Class you will be entered into a drawing from a Door Prize. It is one entry per person and any student, faculty or staff members will be eligible for Bonus Prizes.
Counting points for weekly servings- 1 pt for every serving of fruits and vegetables that you eat each day.
So eat more vegetables and fruits and get more points.
Please don't "fudge" your score. If you eat a Subway sandwich every six-inch sub will count as one serving. You don't get one point per tomato slice rather you need to have both lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers on your sub which will count as one serving. If you only like lettuce, then have a lot of lettuce (at least 1/2 cup will make it a serving).

Counting points for this week: Give yourself 1 pt for every 8 ounces of water you drink, up to 64 ounces. If you drink more than that, good for you, but the maximum points should total 8. Also give yourself 1 pt for every complete serving of COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES that you eat. These would include brown rice, whole grain breads and cereals, whole grain pastes etc. But, it also includes vegetables such as dark leafy greens, root vegetables etc. Keep in mind that so-called vegetables are not included tomatoes, eggplant, squashes, green beans, avocadoes and corn don't count. They are fruits. So, if you are wondering if something is a true vegetable then "google it." I find website relatively accurate or email firstname.lastname@example.org and she will make ruling.
